I woke up this morning and had a barrage of emails, DMs, and Telegram messages from my intel sources, and as I was sitting there having my morning coffee, I have to say that I was set aback.
Folks, I really try not to be doom and gloom. I try to show what is going on out there as well as presenting you solutions you can act on to better your and your family’s state of preparedness.
Please take the time to read these facts so that you can stay informed
Also read my recommendations that I give at the end of this article to help you and your family.
So, what is going on this morning, and what is the intelligence pointing to?
The world is literally on the brink of WW3.
The powers that be are playing a VERY dangerous game of chess, and all it takes is just one itchy trigger finger, and things will literally explode.
So, what is going on?
US Officially Have Boots on the Ground – Mission Creep in Ukraine
It is now confirmed that US Troops are in Ukraine. Now the storyline being presented is that these troops are “just weapons inspectors,” making sure the recent shipment of weapons is going into the right hands and not being pulled into the black market.
From The Washington Post – A Pentagon briefing confirmed this “small” contingency of troops has been advised to not do inspections “close” to the front lines of fighting:
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to provide a military update, would not say where the inspections are taking place or how close to the battlefronts the U.S. troops are getting. The official said U.S. personnel can’t do inspections “close to the front lines” but said they are going where security conditions allow.
In a follow-up Tuesday report, The Washington Post detailed the following:
U.S. monitors have conducted in-person inspections for only about 10 percent of the 22,000 U.S.-provided weapons sent to Ukraine that require special oversight.
U.S. officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide details that have not been made public previously, said they are racing to deploy new means for tracking weapons seen as having a heightened risk of diversion, including Stinger surface-to-air missiles and Javelin antitank missiles, amid what they describe as Ukraine’s “super-hot conflict.”
No matter the excuse, US troops now have boots on the ground in Ukraine, and anyone who has studied history will know the odds of those “inspectors” leaving are pretty slim.
This is called “Mission Creep”. In other words, you put a small number of troops in and call them whatever you want. Then there will be the need for more, then more, and then more. Suddenly, we have a whole division of boots on the ground, and no longer are they inspectors but a battle force being staged.
But that is not all …
Russia Deploys Mig 31 Armed with Kinzhal Missiles to The Ukrainian Front
Russia has deployed Mig 31 Interceptor jets with Kinzhal hypersonic missiles to the European border with Belarus.
What is the Kinzhal Missile?
The Kh-47M2 Kinzhal is a Russian nuclear-capable hypersonic aero-ballistic air-to-surface missile. It has a claimed range of more than 2,000 km (1,200 mi), Mach 12 speed (3.4 km/s, 2.5 mi/s), and an ability to perform evasive maneuvers at every stage of its flight. It can carry both conventional and nuclear warheads and can be launched from Tu-22M3 bombers or MiG-31K interceptors.
This means that if launched, these Mig 31 could deliver a hypersonic missile to just about anywhere in Europe with a reaction time of just minutes, if not seconds. Being nuclear capable is also a big concern.
But that is not all …
Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Threatens Ukraine with Nukes
Dmitry Medvedev stated that a Ukrainian victory in the war would lead to Russia’s collapse, concluding that extreme measures might be required to stave that off.
“If Russia doesn’t win, then, apparently, Ukraine will,” said Medvedev.
“Ukraine’s goal in the war was stated – the return of all territories that previously belonged to it. Which means seizing them from Russia. This is a threat to the existence of our state, and it means the collapse of Russia as it is today. It is also a direct reason for applying Clause 19 of the Fundamentals of the State Policy of the Russian Federation in the field of nuclear deterrence.”
Folks, let me boil this down for you. They’re saying that if they lose any of the additional territories that Russia considers theirs, they are going to use nuclear weapons. Plain and simple.
What we need to remember is that the majority of Russia’s budget is geared toward the military, with most of that budget being spent on nuclear weapons.
In simple terms, they got them, they will use them, and they will blame the West for pushing Russia into a corner where they feel they need to use them.
This is a serious and scary game of cat and mouse taking place.
But that is not all…
Russia accuses UK of ‘directing’ Nord Stream blasts
Russia has accused the United Kingdom of carrying out attacks on the Nord Stream undersea gas pipelines, with Moscow saying it is considering what “further steps” to take over the alleged acts of sabotage.
“Our intelligence services have data indicating that British military specialists were directing and coordinating the attack,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Tuesday, without providing any evidence to support his claim.
What is being reported is that Russians are saying that right after the pressure dropped Nord Stream pipeline and then blew up that Liz Truss sent Antony Blinken, US Secretary of State, a text or an e-mail saying one word… “Done.”
In other words, anything “done” in Russia’s eyes is incriminating her as being the one responsible for the destruction of the Nord Stream. Again, this was sent exactly one minute after the alarm went off at Gazprom with cloud recordings of Prime Minister Liz Truss’ phone showing that she used her iPhone to send a text message to Antony Blinken.
Is this true or not? This news has not come out from official sources, but it is being reported in Russian news. Possible propaganda? Another stirring of the pot?
But that is not all…
Saudi Arabia on High Alert Over Intel of Impending Iranian Attacks
Saudi Arabia is on high alert after Saudi intelligence shared with the U.S. indicated that Iran is expected to carry out an attack on targets focusing on Saudi Arabia’s oil fields.
Officials reported concern about overcoming attacks. Saudi officials said that in addition to Saudi Arabia, Iran is also looking to strike Erbil, Iraq, where U.S. troops are located.
With all the energy issues taking place in the world right now. I find it interesting that the oil fields are being possibly targeted.
I mean, hey… let’s throw literal gas on the global fires burning today!
Think about it, we have high fuel costs now, along with diesel being in very short supply. What would our gas prices look like if this would take place?
If you have the means, stock up on some fuel.
But that is not all …
North Korea Launches 23 Missiles, Triggering Air-Raid Alarm in South Korea
North Korea launched at least 23 missiles off its east and west coasts on Wednesday, one of which flew near South Korean waters and triggered an air-raid alert on a populated island, where people took cover. It was the first time the North had fired that many missiles in a single day.
South Korea responded by firing missiles from fighter jets into waters near the North’s territory. The exchange marked the first-time missiles had been launched across the Koreas’ maritime border, the South’s Defense Ministry said, though all of them fell into international waters.
Folks, can it get any crazier?
Again, what are the powers that be doing to this world?
Are we being set up for some sort of global reset or something?
But that is not all …
US Food Prices Have Exploded AND Will Get Worse
The cost of living has become extremely oppressive, and this is particularly true when it comes to food. We just got some new numbers from the Department of Labor on Wednesday, and quite a few of them are just too incredible to believe…
Fresh and dried vegetables: up 15.7 percent for the month and 40.2 percent for the year.
Grains: up 10.7 percent for the month and 30.4 percent for the year.
Fresh eggs: up 16.7 percent for the month and 97.3 percent for the year.
Bakery products: up 0.8 percent for the month and 14.0 percent for the year.
Pasta: up 1.1 percent for the month and 34.1 percent for the year.
Finfish and shellfish: up 2.5 percent for the month and 2.9 percent for the year.
Processed fruits and vegetables: up 2.6 percent for the month and 16.0 percent for the year.
Dairy products: down 1.6 percent for the month but up 18.2 percent for the year.
Soft drinks: up 1.9 percent for the month but up 15.8 percent for the year.
Pork: up 5.5 percent for the month but down 2.0 percent for the year.
Fresh fruits and melons: down 1.2 percent for the month but up 20.7 percent for the year.
Turkey: up 0.5 percent for the month and 38.2 percent for the year.
This is crazy.
Conclusion – What Can You Do?
First and foremost, understand that these are global players, and there is not much you can do to affect these global situations.
With all that is going on, take inventory of what you have on hand and look at what holes you may have in your preps.
Create a list of these items and start acquiring them.
Push Forward & Double Down With Your Food Preps – Please know that I am not telling you to go out and buy everything now, aka panic buying. Keep a steady head about yourself but instead of buying that 1-2 cans of Spam, think about buying 4-6 cans.
Start looking for sales and check multiple grocery stores to really stretch your dollars so that you can acquire the most you are able.
Food prices will continue to go up, and you need to look at food as an investment. What you buy now WILL go up in price. If you don’t have to buy it because you have stocked up means you have funds to buy other things to improve your preps.
Start Storing Fuel If Possible – I would consider picking up some 5-gallon fuel cans and putting some fuel back just in case. Now, if you do not have a place to store these, then that piece of advice may not help. But if you do, I would consider it, especially if you are running diesel vehicles.
Increase Your Water Preps – I would strongly consider increasing your water preps. One thing you can do to do this is look into a Water BOB. These are liners that go into your bathtub, and you can fill your tub up past the overflow outlet tubs have. This should give you 50 – 70 gallons of water that you now have access to.
If you do not have one of these, they are running about $35 on Amazon. I would get one for every bathroom you have that has a tub.

Finally, Pray – I am one who stands with God, and I work hard at living the best life possible in light of His Word. With that said, folks…we need to pray. We need to pray for our nation. We need to pray for our leaders, and for heaven’s sake, we need to pray for the rest of the global leaders who have their fingers on the button.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
This is my life verse; I call it “The Third-Party Rule,” and it is what I lean on when times and trials are rough and even when times are good.
This is what I really try to live by.
Let me put it this way, do what you can do with the resources, gifts, and talents you have and when you have done all that you can do, then turn the steering wheel over to God and trust Him to see you through.
So, pray and keep pushing forward, doing all that you can for yourself and your family. Do not go crazy about it, and take solace that God has got your back.
